. immediately after obama was elected, we saw two of the largest hate websites in the country crash. >> reporter: potok told us that by the late '80s, the klan dwindled to a few hundred. they now number closer to 6,000. >> white power! >> reporter: he believes they can be very dangerous. >> it's dangerous, not so much because a whole bunch of klansmen get together in a room and plan to murder 1,000 people with a bomb so, you know, it's the lone wolf characters that get frustrated with their leaders that break away, you know, one day, walk out of their house and start shooting. >> reporter: with that in mind, at a gas station outside of tupelo, the grand dragon appears. he is also known as steven howard, 31 years old, he says he's an iraq war veteran. he comes with a loaded pistol on his hip and tells me he's got serious ptsd. we agree to follow him to a remote location, where cell phone service is spotty. next to a trailer by the woods. they ask us not to photograph howard's 11-year-old daughter, but she is there, as is his wife, nicole, presiding over the food. between eating and target practic
hussein obama, do solemnly swear... >> narrator: barack obama inherited a country on the brink. >> stunning crowd of people that converged on the nation's... >> our economy is badly weakened... >> narrator: an economy in collapse. >> greed and irresponsibility on the part of some... >> narrator: he kept saying the problems were big enough, and his win historic enough, that everyone in washington would join together to fix the country. >> he spoke of no less than remaking america... >> he got to washington and he became president, i think, still clinging to this view that the polarization in american politics could be overcome. >> this is the biggest inaugural of all time... >> you're going to be hearing a lot of superlatives today, but i think it is almost impossible to be too hyperbolic... >> narrator: to the new president, it seemed like an historic opportunity. >> president obama did not have a full sense of what washington was going to be like for him. he had not been in the middle of these kind of down and dirty fights, the ugly reality of governing in washington today. >>
away is that obama should be saying and touting what he's done for our country. because people don't understand that in the very first -- wow -- first few months, literally, even while he was trying to repair the bush-cheney era screwups, the bottom line is he and his whole administration went throughout this country, from president obama to dr. chew, the head of d.o.e., to the heads of commerce, you name it, they all spread out across the country, talking to manufacturers in the united states in a wide variety of industries, literally, virtually every industrial sector. but the bottom line is he went, and they said, look, what can we, the government, do to assist you in being the best you can be? what can we do to make you hire more people, not just for today and tomorrow, but the next three, five, 10, 20 years? host: b.j. in gilbert, arizona, thanks for the call. we're going to take a look at some more items on facebook, facebook.com/cspan. greg writes -- host: also in social media, we've got joseph ramirez, who sends in this tweet -- host: we continue looking at your optimism or
and a obama 2008 supporter. >> it was something different for the country, something that hadn't happened before, with a black president. so i got caught up in that a little bit. but i think he's a disappointment. >> you don't like what you got but you're not sold on the alternative? >> absolutely not. at this point i don't know who i'm going to vote for. >> reporter: tense final days. in a place long known for historic battle fields. >> so close like almost all the battleground what happens in the end what happens on the ground. both parties say they've got a much better ground operation than 2008. the republicans say they've knocked on more than a million doors and they say their early voting numbers are improved. the democrats say no way. they will win virginia again because of this 60 plus offices statewide, latino strags up 19%. and under 60% under the age of 30. the democrats hope will put them over the top. romney needs it. the president would like to keep it. >> we're hearing so many of these reports there could be recounts like in 2000. one of candidates could win the popular vot
't think that's outrageous. >> is america a more or less racist country since barack obama became president? >> i think it's not a racist country. as i say in the book, i think there are more child molesters than genuine racists in america. >> you actually believe that? >> i can save you a lot of time. anything i say, i actually believe. yes. and i think i marshal a fair amount of evidence to demonstrate that. i think more the problem is the accusations of racism and that does drive the races apart because you have white people walking on egg shells, terrified they are going to say some word that's going to be deemed, you know, an incipient klan sentiment and that's why the crux of my book is the turning point of the o.j. verdict when i think white america saw black people cheering the acquittal of an obviously guilty black celebrity and said that's it, the white guilt bank is shut down. not only did that help race relations, it specifically helped black people as republican policies that had been pushed for years but demagogued as racist, law and order, welfare reform, were actually able t
in colorado ohio romney told supporters president obama is not the man to lead the country for another four years years. >> you see he's reelected you're going to have the status quo. he calls it forward, i call it forewarned. >> romney is off to florida while ryan continues to campaign in ohio. >> it's always america is in decline, america is not in decline, you're in denial. >> reporter: as for the democrats, vice president joe biden hit the trail in ohio, president obama spent the day in washington, d.c. >>> and coming up in eight minutes we sit down with a group of northern california voters, what's on their minds as they pick a president and help shape the future of the nation. >>> more bad news tonight for hockey fans what we've learned about plans for a full nhl season. the giants in detroit later in sports what ryan vogelsan had to say about starting tomorrow in game three. >> i'm going to have the forecast for game three, i think you're going to be surprised on how cool the temperatures are going to be and of course we have the bay area weekend, see you back here in a few minutes,
their hands for romney, three for obama and one undecided. >> to me that's what makes this country. >> reporter: a country that allows its people to vote for its leader. a country where every vote counts for every candidate. >> reporter: are you going to give romney the chance? >> i can't give him a chance. >> reporter: whether it's a swing state, a red state or a blue state the obama-romney debate is cooking in diners like this one across america. >> so if you kill business what kind of government do you have? you have a broke government. >> i know these guys keep saying mitt romney is a businessman but i don't think that he's a small businessman. >> reporter: and as this conversation goes the clock ticks and the final count down to election day is under way. mike mibach, ktvu news. >>> employees at the san francisco -- workers would turn off air-conditioning in clean rooms at night even though they were supposed to be climate controlled. so far 338 people have gotten sick from the outbreak and 25 have died. >>> in a little bit of fog is showing up at the coast tonight it's just g
romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a i mber of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debas making a difference is that, had there been debat in the i ldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgovern/nixon election, i think we would not have had the blowout landslides that we had. what debates do is take the caricaturing of the challenger and give the challenger a chance to snd there and be who the re challenger would like
people want to see big changes. and together we can bring that kind of real change to our country. [applause] you know, four years ago candidate obama spoke to the times. he shrinks from it, from characters on sesame street and silly word games to misdirected personal attacks he knows are false. his campaign falls short of the magnitude of these times and the presidency of the last four years have fallen short of the promises of his campaign. four years ago america voted for a post partisan president but they've seen the most partisan of presidents and washington is in gridlock because of it. president obama promised to turn us together but he divided. he promised to cut the deficit in half, he doubled it. how about his budget? it failed to win a single vote either republican or democrat in either house of the congress. he said he would reform medicare and social security and save them from pending insolvency but he shrunk from proposing any solution at all. where are the jobs? where are the 9 million more jobs his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, cana
the country's future. wisconsin we've lost just under 100,000 jobs under president obama. we've talked about thing that is affect families and affect neighborhoods and health care and jobs. wisconsin really has suffered as much as almost any state with the loss of those jobs in the slowdown in economic activity. it's punishing the working people of the state. so what i would say to you in general terms is that we need a better economy. we need to have more jobs. we need to have a better future. so everybody's future is going to get better when this economy gets back on its feet. and it's not 43 months of over % unemployment. that doesn't help working people, it doesn't help anybody. so we have to turn that around. that's what governor romney is focused on. host: let me get your perspective on this. he just makes this perspective. how would you respond to that? guest: well, having introduced him a couple of times he's anything but that. i will tell you this. you talk about transparency. mitt romney's economic plan is plan for the future has been on his website for months. one of the comecal t

[applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through p

part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he has across the country, and in the northeast of ohio, the auto bailout made a difference i. it is so much of a problem that rob portman, introducing romney in defiance, ohio in front of a huge crowd, said that "we have got to talk about this auto bailout tonight." they are still trying to explain. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reach. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls, and romney is up on average -- >> you can take your calls in virginia, because another poll shows obama is up in virginia. even with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area still pretty much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state. it only presidentially became a democratic state recently . >> then bartlet came along. >> the problem for ravi here is that unless he gets the search, it is close enough that if he l

and -- >> in this country which is mostly white they voted for barack obama and put him in based on agreeing with the liberal policies. while there are racial issues in every society and there is real racism this is not about the racial divide. this is about pushing the division of the classes. >> sean: he goes gop voters hate obama and want him out of the white house more are than they want to destroy al-qaeda their number one enemy in the world right now is their hatred for obama. we can go into about the white working class in the south and looking at numbers we are getting in the last couple of days about racial hatred. where is this coming from? so america that voted for obama in 2008 was not racist but you america that maybe is rejecting failed policies s racist and unmany ployment through the roof and record deficits and record debt and 17 million more americans on food stamps and he broke his promises about cutting the debt in half, the deficit in half in the first term? >> there are those who believe that since the reconstruction in this country there has been a backlash to progress
